    A poem I wrote was read by a Bot and added to some music I had!!
    A second version was prompted thanks to feedback from Luke, L-TeK;
    one that should include a real spoken word artist. I immediately thought of Diana Garnand. The texture of her voice, I thought, was perfect for the piece. I asked her and she obliged, with an inspired rendition which you can listen to here! The music was embellished slightly to enhance..
    Thanks, enjoy!
    The piece is dedicated to the Bot !!

    It's my word
    but then again
    the sense of a response is
    lost without you

    because

    I'm lost in a word pool.
    then again
    my feet wobbled here in
    the quest for a library of
    easily quotable biblical bubbles

    because

    I'm frost with 'sugar'
    in a frozen land
    and chilly as a literary icicle
    in a 'horsehair' bath of ink
    suspended from an idea
    outside my area code of conduct

    because

    I'm not 's' or 'p' in
    their essence
    I am a p.s.
    in an afterthought creche
    where btw, "I'll be late collecting ya,
    but I'm always there when ya need me"

    because
    I am blood
    and you are sugar
    and we need each other
    --not because we sound good--
    but because..
    just because you are sister
    and you are brother

    ONE

    and I am the worst kind of poet you'll hear
    because I'm not straight,
    in fact I'm 2 economical with everything
    in truth 2 point ZERO.
    I could lead the country into the freezer.
    "wouldn't you know me
    if you froze me?"
    and we'd get rich and you could get screwed
    and bellies would flop into . .

    my word pool
    and I would read you
    and the day would darken, coldly,

    because
    I am not worth the binary
    toilet paper this poetiquette is
    scribbled upon
    because1
    because2
    because3

    I am human.
    and there you stand before me,
    because.
